The 50 Best TV Episodes of 2007

The Futon CriticThe folks over at compile a list every year of the 50 best individual television episodes of the year. I always find it very close to my own ranking, although I don’t watch many of the shows they rank. Today, they completed their recap of 2007. (NOTE: Under each entry is a sentence that contains major spoilers! If you just want a list, I’ll put it after the jump.)

I still say that the last ten minutes of the latest season of Battlestar Galactica is one of my favorite moments in television all-time, but since they gave the show its #1 spot last year, I suppose I can’t be too upset with them putting it at #2, especially considering who it lost out to. One big surprise: I figured #15 would be much higher than it ended up.

Here’s the list:

  1. Lost: Through the Looking Glass
  2. Battlestar Galactica: Crossroads, Part 2

    I very much agree with the Dr. Who episode “Blink” being on the list. I don’t watch Dr. Who normally, but I’ve saved a copy of that episode. It could easily be a movie.

    One Tree Hill 3.16 should be on this list.. the high school shooting episode really made an impact in young adolescents.

    Lost – got to agree with that..

    And of course; how I met your mother! wow.. awesome show..

    God I’m hooked on way too many TV shows right now..

    desperate housewives, prison break, and heroes 😀 wow!
